that of castro in cuba, or kim jong-un in north korea. but the big difference is we have economic relations with venezuela. explain that sort of, i guess that sort of odd dynamic. >> well, the dynamic, chuck, is that chavez was basically pragmatic in his relationship with the u.s. venezuela's our fourth largest oil supplier, they're members of opec, venezuela is like their political -- oil is like their political weapon, but whenever it was with the u.s., they never used it. and chavez, it's all the citgo stations in the u.s. chavez never used it. however, the last 14 years the relationship has been very frigid, and i think it is an opportunity for us to step in in a new relationship with venezuela. it's an important oil-producing country. there's going to be an election there. the opposition candidate is pro-u.s. maduro, the vice president is not pro-u.s., but i think is going to be more pragmatic with chavez. but in the region, i think we have an opportunity to make inroads in the region because several countries had started to follow chavez against the u.s. in the region. >> right. that'

anymore, kim jong-un. he has been in for what about a year now? >> yeah. after his father died. apparently the relationship between china and north korea has been described as like lips and teeth. that is the phrase the chinese use but the chinese for years have been trying to get the north koreans to behave basically. they brought kim jong-il on numerous trips to parts of china. they show him factories. tell him, this is how you need to reform your economy and i think the chinese perspective the north koreans haven't listened an they're condition standly issue these provocations which frankly isn't good for business and the business of china right now is business. >> host: taking your calls on this segment on north korea and a variety of other foreign policy issues. cass up first from grand junction colorado, on the democratic line. >> caller: thank you for taking my call. i've been an obama fan for a very long time and i voted for him but i'm very pleased what he did. no one does everything exactly right, when you're fighting your own country as well as having to fight foreign wars, it g

the north koreans to behave for years. they brought kim jong un on numerous trips to china and they show him factories and they tell him this is how you need to reform your economy. the north koreans have not listened. they constantly issue provocations. it's not good for business. and the business of china right now is business. host: taking your calls on foreign-policy issues. up first, grand junction, colorado, on the democratic line is cat. caller: thanks for taking my call. i am a fan of obama. nobody does anything exactly right. when you are fighting your own country as well as having to fight foreign wars, it gets to be pretty hard. i think he has handled it in a very courageous and very gentlemanly way. i have never seen a speech being given when he was on his way getting in office where they showed a picture of a man with a sign strapped around his waist [indiscernible] i don't think we would of seen that before any other president. host: how about north korea being a tree pena nation to deal with, on an international level? caller: i think obama is doing the best he can, considerin
missile attack. what the greater fear is kim jong u.n., kim the younger trying to prove himself and the military commanders trying to flex their power. some experts worry that that could lead to an attack not against the united states directly but against one of our allies, japan or south korea. shep? what did the united nations do today that is supposed to help prevent all of this. >> they introduced a series of measure in this security council resolution that are designed to stop north korea importing or crucially exporting nuclear technologies and stop the flow of cash that goes along with those kinds of exchanges of technology according to the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice, these are some of the strongest punishments the security council has ever put together. listen. >> taken together these sanctions will bite and bite hard. they increase north korea's isolation and raise the cost to north korea's leaders of defying the international community. >> now, importantly here, china has not just signed on to this resolution but, in fact, drafted it. but their words will b

behavior now by kim jong-un, which i think really are calling into question his judgment on the part of people in north korea. certainly and ionizing all of asia. and i say all of asia, because i know it's causing discomfort in every capital. under these conditions, if we were to simultaneously deployed those controls over the currency, though sanctions, and step up on the anti-proliferation initiative that -- security proliferation initiative that we had in place before, where south korea, the united states and other countries were stopping ships that were bringing contraband, bringing the illicit exports, you know, contraband -- one of the things they do is math. they do a lot of drugs. missile parts. you know, armaments, stop those chips on the high seas and send it back. suddenly of cut off the means of obtaining hard currency. so the legislation that we are working on will address specifically that approach that was tried in 2005, along with the anti-proliferation activities to interdict. over on this side, yes, ma'am. >> thank you so much for your excellent presentation about t
